Love Actually (Richard Curtis – 2003) A-

11/27/2004 – Maybe it is a chick flick, predictable, very sweet, unrealistic and improbable (The British Premier looking for his Cinderella on X-mas eve. hmmmm…??!!). It is also very well written, filled with well defined characters, impeccably performed, funny and warm. So there, this one is a favorite “romantic comedy” of ours.


Once upon a Time in America (Sergio Leone – 1984) A+

11/12/2004 – At almost 4 hours long, this film flows without a single boring moment. The story is great so are the cast members, the perfect set pieces, the music and the editing and filming of the past and present in the long tale. I rank this one up there with the Godfather trilogy and Goodfellas.
